Welcome to Kainuu Orienteering Week 2024 as a volunteer!

The Kainuu Orienteering Week is known as an orienteering and holiday week for the whole family and it is one of Finland's largest mass sport events, which annually gathers 4,000 to 10,000 participants in Kainuu. Each year, around 300-350 volunteers organizes the event. For the next  summer, we expect a total of more than 4,000 orienteers and 1,500-2,000 spectators. There are a wide variety of work tasks, and most of them do not require orienteering experience at all. The skills of every volunteer can be used in various activities before, during, and after Kainuu Orienteering Week.

Kainuu O Week is a relaxed and easy-going event where orienteers of all levels, the spectators and the volunteers enjoy the Kainuu summer and a great sports event atmosphere. Come and enjoy working together!
